Help Me Think

My wife was trying to remember the name of the neighbor's cat. After several wrong guesses, she employed the help of our ten-year old son.

 "Help me think!", my wife said.

It's a huge challenge for me get my own thinking done.  I have no idea how to 'help' somebody else do it.  I strained and scrunched up my face.  "Is this helping?", I asked. was not.

So I started rubbing my temples and emitting a deep hum.

"Okay.  Stop helping me", she said.
